    Okay.... So dig, I been pleading my case for days
    Trying to get my lady to see it my way
    But NOOOOOOOOO, all she can think of is marriage
    Im like yo I feel, ya but lets slow down this carriage
    Cause I love you.....and that aint no lie
    But for the past couple of months we aint had the sweetest tasting pie

    See me being a brotha, I just want solidity
    You know,not like last month or the month before,
    In which you tried to get rid of me.

    I know you say I don t love you enough to make a life long sacrifice
    But baby it aint a sacrifice its like a death sentence if things arent right
    And your slammin me, bashing, thinking Im less of a man
    Just because Im man enough to say timings not right to take your hand.

    An you'll be the first to admit
    I dont stay out, late, argue, cheat or none of that snit.
    But you'll put to me....... either I get married or thats its!

    Well baby I cant do it, unless we're on common ground
    No need to rush, Im not leaving, Ill stick around
    Only to make sure what we have is solid
    You know, secure our future remains valid.

    Cause haste makes waste and I refuse to cheat you like this
    I know, your such and such age, and everyone you know is doing it
    I just want you to understand this is for the better
    If the preacher wants to bag on me then let her!

    So you see this as a rejection
    And its simply not the case
    I see this a protection
    and building a firm base.

    Skip it baby I love you can you please stay.................
    Her response was " HUH cute but later gator theres just know other way!
    Im out and I hope you find solidity, to bad you missed out
    and it wont be with me!

    So now I learn loves hard lesson,
    If the womens ready, and your not
    These days you better count your blessin

    I still had to telll her though, marriage doesnt measure love
    And hopefully you dont learn this the hard way, but if you ever need a shoulder I be there night or day!

    i aint mad at cha, sounds like ya'll are not playing on the same team. i've never been married before but came close. all i can say is if there is any doubt its probably not a good sign. divorce is expensive. i'm feeling you on this brother

    Well written piece, but that is nothing unusual about your pen. I think most people get cold feet when it comes to marriage. The question is, are your feet cold because it is a normal reaction, or is there something more. And that is something only each individual can answer for themselves.
